Heston Blumenthal uses his maverick culinary genius to dramatically re-invent food production at four great British institutions.
Heston Blumenthal is one of the very best chefs in the world. He s made his name with original and, some might say, downright bizarre dishes served at his famous restaurant, The Fat Duck : snail porridge, egg & bacon ice-cream and fish n chips (served with an iPod)!
Now Heston is taking his totally unique approach to food out to the wider world. In each episode, the maverick chef uses his culinary genius to tackle the kitchen dilemmas of a major institution. But are his techniques palatable with their profit margins?
The kitchens of an NHS hospital, the Cineworld chain of cinemas, British Airways and the Royal Navy all come under scrutiny as Heston conducts outrageous and bizarre experiments in his quest to find solutions where other chefs have failed.
